The amount of advice LeBron James has gotten in his career: Not zero. For sure, countless people have been in the ears of the Los Angeles Lakers superstar since his high school days. But good thing for him, he's definitely forged his own path.
For all his greatness, LeBron still continues to receive vitriol from haters. Even if he eventually finds the antidote to finally put an end to COVID-19, he would still get bashed. Like most NBA stars, for sure, he's had his fair share of personal problems as well. But The King has always separated them from his professional job.
Now, it's LeBron who appears to have a piece of advice when it comes to personal baggage, posting a picture of him on his Instagram story with a caption, “Don't take it personal, just take it with you.”
LeBron has been known to make passive-aggressive remarks in the past, especially during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, so this might be one of them. Although to be frank, it's good wisdom from LBJ, who will enter his 18th season. If there's one guy who knows all about receiving personal jabs, it's him.
LBJ has used negative comments to fuel him, leading the Lakers to the NBA title in 2020 while setting a bunch of team records along the way.
This season, the four-time MVP will be mindful that many critics have called the Lakers “too old” because of their roster. Luckily for LeBron James, proving people wrong never gets old.
